NewsWADA revoke accreditation of Lisbon Laboratory owing to ongoing issues

October 27, 2018

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has revoked the accreditation of the Lisbon Laboratory owing to longstanding issues at the facility, it was announced today.

In a statement, WADA said its Executive Committee had made the decision after the laboratory in the Portuguese capital failed to address ongoing problems.

The laboratory failed to satisfactorily resolve the issues outlined by WADA’s Laboratory Expert Group and the Disciplinary Committee after formal proceedings were opened.

The accreditation of the facility was first suspended for a period of six months in April 2016 before it was extended to a year by WADA.

After the one-year ban had expired, WADA said the “irregularities persisted”, prompting the organisation to initiate disciplinary proceedings to revoke the Lisbon Laboratory’s accreditation entirely. read more
